Question about Mintek MDP-1070

1 Answer

Mintek 1070 I've owned this machine for a couple of years and unfortunately it has only worked about a dozen times. I phoned tech services before the warranty was up and tried their troubleshooting techniques which unfortunately were merely short lived fixes. The trouble is the machine won't read DVD's. It use to play CD's, but no longer does. I was told to allow the machine to play a CD to reset the laser so the DVD would play but that was only a temporary fix. The DVD/CD sounds like it's reading but then slows down and tried to read the media....nothing plays. Is there anything i can do with my paperweight?

With the power turned off, open the lid and then open the hatch where you put the DVD into. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser lens is attached to an assembly that moves diagonally outward in a slot. First, slide this assembly outward. Second, slide it back inward. Now repeat, slide out then back in. Next, put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. (This re-calibrates the laser head assembly movement.) When the music CD is done playing, put in a DVD, you'll have a working unit again. I had to do it twice...

It does not appear you will find them. The last time their web page was active was in August 2007. =>*/

They had a recall of portable batteries and a lawsuit on infringement. The parent company is Jiangsu Digital Technology Co., Ltd. ("Shinco Digital").

The website is down and the phone numbers don't seem to work. Last known address.
